Komisarek has upside??

That's a first. He is what he is, he's not going to sprout some puck handling ability anytime soon... I think he would desperately like to go back to playing beside Markov.

Gomez has a horrible contract and he's playing like a third line centre. But to be honest, the Habs wouldn't bother to waive him or whatnot unless they were able to get another centre.

Now as for this trade, Bozak + Komisarek are roughly equivalent to Gomez's salary I believe. So what's the incentive for the Habs to do it and give up Pouliot too? They aren't gaining anything, Komisarek is trash now that it's clear he can't play without a partner who covers up all his mistakes...Bozak can play, but is he equivalent to Gomez and Pouliot combined? No.

And as for the Leafs, well yeah Gomez might click with Kessel but the fans would jump overboard because dreams of Richards would be disappearing...
